Exploring Attachment Patterns in Relationships With Chelsea Wakefield
"Our attachment patterns are something that is almost unconscious because they're so early they have to do with our early experiences with Caregivers and whether does experience this fell relatively secure. Whether we have the kind of responsiveness that we needed or feel safe. And welcome in the world or whether they were inconsistent or sometimes they were even dangerous. So when i talked people were back. Their early. lives I find that some of them as little kids were really really focused on their parents and they wanted to know how to please them. What are the parents lawn and needs that. They could stay in alignment with them and do not get in trouble or get the kind of attention that they were longings for that creates something called an anxious attachment pattern where the lottery. Johnston is hyper focused on the other and the needs of the other and every little nuance of that other person. That indicates that there's a message then. Maybe they're displeasing them or perhaps that other person has gotten a little bit different her distant because they feel overwhelmed by the attention they start your more insecure and afraid of abandonment so that's one type of attachment patterns that we call anxious and the other type of detachment pattern looks more independent but it's also insecure attachment patterns and these are the children that grew up learning that it was best just to go to their room and read a book or play video games and they sued and settled most of the way along. So if you get paranoia somebody who is afraid of abandonment and the other in. Who's afraid of being overwhelmed by a lot of emotion are hey us that could be a really difficult herring and those two galloping across the relationship landscape because one's trying to rock closer than the others seeking says and both of them are misinterpreting accused the

"That might describe what you just said and the question about whether to go all or nothing or take what you can and that seems like a hard question to answer in this moment. where are you on it. Are you on if we can only get the surface roads and bridges piece. Take it or do you feel it all has to be bundled together. I don't see this as an either or these two are show linked together. We cannot leave. You know half of our economy or three quarters of our economy behind. We have to do it. All and whether it comes out which can be very confusing looking at the different parliamentary procedures and processes of congress and the house versus the senate. And how we handle the move. Legislation through is really the secondary question. The primary question one that house democrats have answered that the president has answered these pieces. These policies are all one if we want a robust recovery if we want to remain our place as a global economy we have to move forward on all of these pieces together. The timing may be different but they must move as one package package. Because that's the way we make a difference for americans at home. That's the way we build an economy that is inclusive and for the future. So i hear you on the timing may be different but it does appear to a watchers that it is possible that even if you did them at different times the whole thing might fall apart because there might not be the votes if it appears that the surface transportation piece is tied to the larger economic spending peace am i am i understanding that correctly and if so are you risking getting anything done in order to get it all done. We're gonna get it all done. I mean that's a resolve because that's what needs to happen so i don't see it as a series of trade offs or choices. This is about how we invest in the american people and we only have to look back to march to see that the democrats in both the house the senate and the white house have already done this and we can do it again. it's just simply you know we can't have sort of halfway measures here You know rebuilding our roads and bridges expanding broadband. All of that is critical. We can't leave that behind to paid leave and child care and making sure that our elders are are cared for you. Know we can't say well we're gonna put climate Off until another time. All of these issues are urgent. All of them. We have solutions and ways to do this now and you know. The president has tech board a an agenda that encompasses everything and so it is not a risk to leave parts behind. It is really just how they will be packaged How they will come together. We'd love to congress. Congressman broad bipartisan support. But that's gonna be up to the republicans. What i can tell you is that the democrats are committed to making sure this full package gets into law because it's what we need for the future so congresswoman before. I let you go just one other question on a different subject. There's a spate of shootings over the holiday weekend across the country later in the hour. We're gonna talk about what happened in wakefield on route one twenty eight. We have a rabbi. Who was stabbed and brain recently and then. Today's services for ramona cooper one of two killed in a violent rampage in winthrop. Which is in your district.

State Police Colonel Christopher Mason says it's against the law in Massachusetts to carry firearms on a public roadway. The men didn't think so and would not give in to police negotiators. They wanted a voice. They wanted to be heard. They wanted a variety of not demands, but requests that they just be allowed to leave the area transit the area without any accountability, And at the end of the day, we couldn't accommodate that. All 11 men finally surrendered to police who have contacted the FBI. It's uncertain at this point in the investigation if they face any federal charges, Suzanne says

How did you come to have electroconvulsive treatment for that anxiety at the time. Well i guess it was treatment for major depression. That's that has to be amo fischel diagnosis. Just because medication related reason was to treat the depression. I guess they never really separate. But i guess always diagnosed with major depression and they were treating it as depression. It was later that somebody figured out. The panicked was at the heart of the problem. But the point where i was at when i had.

Were very against it. Most people Horrified by the idea of act but actually act's changed its. It's come a long way. It was completely painless. And to be honest. I saw people miraculously cured through. Act during my stay in hospital record. I mean because it wipes memory doesn't it to some degree had quite a load of azt over a period of time. You not a way having it because you've given medication so you don't remember once you've had the beneath the tossing injection and you wake up in bed so completely painless but they told me would wipe some memory and it did wipe significant amounts of my memory.

It's like the old cassette types you know when used to press record accident in they'd be a little patch that's missing so yeah there blanks in my memory but it didn't work for me and it probably went on a bit long before i was able to finally really assert myself and say this isn't working and i didn't want to assert myself because i didn't. I thought this was the last resort. So i didn't want to admit that to myself that it wasn't working because i thought there was no hope so it took me a while before i finally kind of just put my foot down and said look this just with my husband's help. We both just said look enough's enough. This isn't working. But i want you to put act into wakefield. Because i think it's much misunderstood..

Now this is a system set up. Cdc and the fda and it looks at us reactions including death and with the introduction of the covid nineteen vaccines has been an extraordinary spike in deaths in any normal circumstance this would have led to the vaccines being withdrawn not just from the market and actually formerly on the market and this they've never been approved by the fda but he would lead them being withdrawn. But because of the circumstances the fan that has been engendered in everybody and referred to those people that you know all around us who are heading the vaccine because of this fake and the fair in competitions making the wrong decision of not knowing. What's going on. But deferring to the advice given to them by people like tony sanchez clearly has a vested interest in vaccines. Look we're going to see a serious fall out. I think over the course of the next year now will emerge when people are re challenged with the vaccine already challenged with the infection when we saw this with the sauce vaccine was abandoned another corona virus vaccine which they did do animal studies with when they did the animal studies. They injected the experimental vaccine into ferrets. In this case ferrets have an immune response which is not dissimilar from that of humans. When they injected with the vaccine they will find it evoked immune response. They didn't seem to have an adverse reaction until they then encountered the natural infection when they encountered the natural infection. they had an extraordinary hyper. Immune response an overreaction. Their immune system was crying to overreact and they suffered severe lung disease and many many died and that is the great worry with this back.

"Think their only option is to move away. I've heard from people in wakefield who want better leagues between northern cities better local transport a more flexible approach to education. The government is looking to local councils to be the catalyst for that change. There is some hope that the election of a new west yorkshire mayor this may might help provide greater capacity for action but as wakefield council chief executive andrew belching points out the local authorities already struggling to cope with swingeing budget cuts behind the facade of our beautiful town hall and the reality for us in local government is that wakefield council is now delivering services to local people with fourteen hundred fewer employees than we had in two thousand and ten at a time that we've seen demand for services rising and we've seen a total of one hundred and fifty five million pounds taken out of our cumulative budgies over that period of time so we're operating with twenty percent fewer people in the workforce that we had two thousand ten the budgets we've seen around a third of our total revenue budget's taken out. Does this sort of add to a sense that there's a capacity issue. I think we're constantly having to assert the importance of local government and increasingly what we have seen as many local authorities have is a greater demand and a greater level of our resources devoted to supporting children families and vulnerable older people and less resources available to invest in areas of economic growth re-generation and neighborhood services which are often described as the universal services many residents value and feel our core task of local government. So we're squeezed in that respect between rising demand and rising need for support for children and adult services unless to spend on those things which the probably the majority of residents will see as visible signs of local government important. So in a sense. You're you're running to stand still absolutely and sometimes going backwards former minister jim. O'neill was part of the cameron. Government introduced the austerity policies. Which squeezed councils like wakefield but he agrees that many local authorities now have a capacity problem that needs fixing. It's actually something. I'm trying to persuade governments on as we shots. It's quite clear to me when you look at what local authorities have capacity to even for devolved ideas and policies. That don't have the staff capability to actually do it in a vigorous fashion so our Less glamorous idea for government to consider is actually giving monies to number of local authorities to helps as many as possible so employ research analysts economists at the color of them are just. Don't have the people from my experience. The building around increasingly fast in circles to deal with keeping things together. Why is often not appreciated. Is behind the scenes in greater manchester going back now for a decade. They had a very small and still do economics units. I'm not sure. How many others have the i think to expand. That's out so many other rabbits whether the bigger or smaller would be very sensible thing. Increasing capacity may indeed help places like wakefield do better in a competitive system of bidding for government cash. Even if it does though it's worth being honest about the task at hand leveling it will take many years if not decades to achieve leveling up to me isn't just coming up with a scheme and say we'll give you twenty five million to try and redevelop eastern sent. It's about systematically year on year putting funding back into wakefield so we can start to do things council leader. Denise jeffries would have many. Who fear the government's leveling up agenda might not be all it's cracked up to be. I think the leveling up It's been a phrase that the prime minister has come out with. Everybody gets excited thinking. They're all gonna get massive injection of muna. I don't think they are. I'm a bit skeptical about it but it's just ended going and i'll have. There's no denying the profound challenges wakefield faces and it's hard not to feel angry when confronted with people like darby and danny fighting so hard against the odds yet. Despite this denise like pretty much everyone. I met not only retains her sense of humor. But it's proud of wakefield impulsive about the place and its future. I'm confident because i know the place.

Not because somebody wanted to do downpour parts of the country but because civil servants and officials have looked at the way you spend money on these things through a particular lens.

The quantum college to re sit sometimes woman's twice. Maybe three times. And i think for me. There's a huge question around. Does it need to be jesus english maths or is it actually about delivering literacy numeracy.

Do level three qualification. Maybe that say levels all the two years or of a casual qualification over two years and then you ready to progress onto the next step. So maybe that's university and and that's far from the picture in wakefield because we see so many young people would not leave in school with the five g attitude towards education lead to catch up quickly. I think sign. I think it's that commitment to lifelong learning as well that it isn't about leaving school coming to college say i ever turned eighteen. It's about being able to tie akin to the education system and upscale as necessary yet for all the challenges sub remains hopeful and seizing courage signs of change in the government's white paper on skills and lifelong learning. And there's more optimism from jim o'neill the former minister vice chair of the northern powerhouse. The revamp of the so-called green book which is the bible for approving the purchase of big investments in the uk which few people involved in all of us myself included being campaigning. Have revamps in the awesome. Spending statement was revamped. And it's kind of designed to allow it to look more seriously places that need leveling. What does that change in practice. We hopefully get rid of the systematic bias where for money approach to analyzing infrastructure projects essentially automatically gives easier path of approval to successful places with a lot of people. And that's at the core of the whole dominance of london greater london in the southeast. Those is much of the rest of england and by specifically changing it to allow full analysis of productivity enhancing investments immediately takes attention so the places that have the weakest productivity if it's being seriously pursued over the long term that is really important for the infrastructure part of leveling up like me.

If you're hoping we'll find out what people there think they need to level up wakefield a strange going back here bluff wakefield in nineteen eighty four to go to university. So that was the last time i lived here I mean the landmarks still here ma school still in town all still here. The cathedral sylvia has places this very very similar and very very different. All the same time. I'm in wakefield west yorkshire the city where. I grew up in the thirty six years since i left some parts of the country of grown richer but wakefield has seen its fortunes fade. It's precisely the kind of place the government has promised to level up and they need to deliver not least as wakefield is part of that famous. Red wall at the last election the conservatives won the seat for the first time in eight hundred thousand nine years but what does leveling up a place like wakefield involve and what do people in wakefield think it should involve. I've come back home to find out just taking down this car here. We have just two plectrums down here. I'm starting out so the council estate loops it on the edge of the city center. And i'm with someone else who remembers the wakefield of my youth. I think one of my recollections is the field nightlife and heading into town with permission sometimes sometimes not with mission it being really busy and vibrant exciting. Lots going on bernie. O'brien his chief executives. In june community center it provides adult learning childcare and young people services bernie and i are the same age but unlike me she came back to wakefield after her studies and while she loves it. It's it's not what it used to be. it was just vibrant undenied. Life was just great. What cues of coaches up and down west skit with people coming from from all of the mining pound you know they were coming from everywhere to enjoy rooftop gardens and casanova and i think part of the reason for becoming such a vibrant place was casanovas. Beat stringfellows a nightclub. If the worms are nothing that was part of the draw it was fab. An acute again was miles. Long was huge. Yeah if you didn't have the right shoes on you didn't get in. And at the end of the night everybody was just all out spilling out onto west skit. Because they'll show to two in the morning or well we looking by and thinking about wakefield. Now what's different. Yeah well wakefield's lost lots of its sense of belonging the community sort of feel as though that just getting by busy juggling things within their own life being part of a wider communities difficult after the eighties and the nineties. Everybody became very not not in seila but there were struggling to get on the minds had gone the mills it closed. The jobs just went there and people just had to survive. So i think it took a nosedive in terms of opportunities it slowed down became sort of a sad sad place. St wouldn't vibrancy anymore. What would the nineteen eighty s. No the nineteen eighteen sought of how to feel of optimism and a future. I think of the nineties that all went it was hard. It was struggle. Lots of industry was setting up but it was more like warehousing and work wasn't based around communities anymore. You might have to travel for two hours just coming. Get a very basic job. That might not really pay enough for you to make feel worthwhile valued. She's got a point. Research by the economic geographer professor christina. Beatty shows that wakefield's labor market has undergone a massive restructuring since my days in casanovas nightclub in one thousand nine hundred eighty one wakefield boasted. Thirty three thousand jobs. In manufacturing and a further eighteen thousand in the coal industry by twenty nineteen almost half those manufacturing jobs had gone and the mindset closed. The mining pound was no more many of the jobs replace. Those lost were low-paid over forty percents of universal credit claimants in wakefield or in work unlike all former mccoll fields wakefield has a higher than average number of people reliance on out of work benefits and yet on the city's waterfront. There are signs and sounds of regeneration. Work is underway to restore a derelict complex of mills. Just next to the city's famous hepworth art gallery the council's labour leader denise. Jeffrey is visibly proud of these new developments. Where we are at the moment is at the have pushed gallery. Barbara hepworth was a local girl. She went to the high school and we felt that if we want to do something for the arts it was important that we recognized what she'd done for us so we invested heavily with her risk. I think it paid off a couple of years ago. Thousand trump center. Some people come from london and said which is the quickest route to the half with with comfort and i saw always made if conflict from london. To see how calgary then it's worth it. It was because of the hat with that. The council manage to entice developers previously planning to invest in manchester to come and see the rutland mill instead the time centers struggling so we need things like ripple mills that's happening down here to really try and get people back into our town centres people to developing that. Have the talian in kings cross. And they're going to replicate that this going to be a hotel this going to be music studios and there's going to be restaurants and bars. An really puts us on the map here. So as gentrification key to your strategy yes it is and i think that if wakefield benefits than the rest of the district will benefit as well. Gentrification here means getting people to move to the district often young professionals who work in leeds.

Brexit camp owner is deal and that remains a possibility but how autrey be affected to find out i asked the writer and art market specialist ivan question and former. Mvp current chief executive of the british chamber of commerce in brussels daniel donaldson daniel before we talk specifically about the art trade and brexit's effects. Let's let let's get a state of play. Where do you see the negotiations now. Well i'm actually still pretty positive. I think actually more or less the deal is done. The question now is how will that date is choreographed. On both sides of the channel to ensure the politically they can get through on both sides. So i actually think the deal was probably more or less agreed at the start of the week. The question now is the uk gay some concessions on northern ireland earlier in the week. I think that was the first stage. The prime minister met with commissioner of on the land on wednesday night. And i think that also was the next stage of of Of this i think you will find that. The eu will grant some concessions on the level playing field over the weekend and the uk will grant some concessions on fish. I'm then. I think we will more or less dale semi. That's the feeling that the Getting in brussels now this could all still Blow up You know the politics of this is still very very delicate. But i think contrary probably what you you see in in some of the media online. Pretty confident that we're still on course for a deal early next week. What do you make these contingency announcements from the that. We're talking on thursday lunchtime in the uk and this morning. The have set out some some aspects of sort of contingency planning. I suppose the portents of that suggests that that no deal was more likely but do you think that's a bit of a smokescreen. Then i think the you is just covering it. It's back because it did the same thing before march last year when when there was the first deadline anthony e you needs to make sure from its point of view that certain things can continue in the case of no deal so for example. Airline routes can continue. Some of these sort of things need to be done so these are more or less the same contingency measures that they put in place just over a year ago when we had that first potential Deal situation. i'm i do think also that You know given the fact that this is going roy down to the wire at this puts a little bit more pressure on the uk to make sure that you know if they were gonna be concessions made. They need to be made very soon. Okay i've what do you think the chief concerns of the art trade are what what information do they need. And what guarantees. They need for this to be something that will stop panic and allow them to continue to trade in the way that they would like to. So i've actually been speaking to people on the ground on what we've been getting a lot. Actually in the market media is A lot of detailed from trade associations and from lawyers and shippers. And that's what we haven't been getting is what is happening on the ground. How do people feel so. That's what i've been focusing on and actually the biggest thing is obviously uncertainty. The most interesting thing to me was. I couldn't find any panic anywhere

The Latest Pandemic Shortage: Dumbbells
"Perhaps, you've spent the summer exercising outdoors, and now you're starting to wonder whether you'll be able to keep that up when winter hits after all even though gyms may have reopened where you are many of us are skittish about exercising indoors with a lot of other sweaty hard breathing people a set of weights for home gym or garage or basement more likely seems like a great solution. Yeah. How often do you have a great idea only to realize everybody else's having the same great idea that's what's happening here folks since the early days of the pandemic stationary bikes, treadmills and streaming workouts have been hot commodities demand for one item in particular has driven scarcity dumbbells just try and buy a set the goods a newsletter published by Vox, says, we're in the midst of the great American dumbbell shortage. All right. So it's not like we're talking about a shortage of life saving drugs but if staying fit means not just health but sanity to to you, a dumbbell shortage could be a very serious thing. We feel your pain. Here's what happened according to the fitness fanatics experts at box think way back in your memory on March fourteenth the president declared the pandemic, a national emergency that was A. Friday the very next day ushered in the weekend that America changed. Colleen. Logan. Of icon health and fitness told Box Logan is vice president of marketing for the company which owns nordictrack other fitness brands that weekend they started seeing what she called crazy crazy sales every day in March sales doubled compared to March twenty nineteen. They quadrupled in April and were up six hundred percent higher in May Logan said. Rival bowflex was also inundated like Nordic track. bowflex sells weights along with bigger, more expensive equipment like bikes and treadmills less well known businesses that specialize in strength training are also struggling to meet demand. Visit S PRI site and you'll see sold out labels on Dumbbell after Dumbbell try to buy kettle bell iron balls with handles, and in many cases retailer rogue fitness won't even give you a ship date instead up POPs vague. Notify me button. The level of demand is unheard of as inside Hook writer Tanner Garrity noted people don't even buy this many dumbbells in the middle of winter when they're cooped up and drafting fitness resolutions. The result of these shortages predictable prices are high according to vox a pair of fifteen pound rogue dumbbells that usually costs forty dollars is currently listed on Ebay for one hundred, sixty, nine dollars. The shortages point to a much bigger issue in the American economy before the pandemic, the vast majority of Kettlebells dumbbells and other free weights were made guess where China? That's right China closed factories and highways from January to April when the sudden unexpected surge of interest occurred here. America's existing supply of weights went fast due to closures in China. Well, no new ones could be made much less ship to America. Now, Chinese factories are open again, but they can't keep up with the outsized desire a few companies including. Rogue. Have turned to small American iron foundries to make them here. But few of those foundries are interested in making consumer products like kettlebells. It's expensive and difficult for them to gear up and they fear retailers will give the business right back to China. Once the global economy is fully open again in the meantime experts say the boom and at home. Workouts is no flash in the PAN ninety percent of Americans who work out say they'll continue exercising at home according to a survey by Wakefield research for some those at home workouts will continue to replace the gym. Others will simply add Jim visits to their routine. Regardless that means booming sales and continuing supply chain headaches for Nordic track bowflex and the light. For the lowly exerciser waiting and waiting for that adjustable weights set to arrive it can also mean getting creative. What else can you pump besides iron weights? Well you could try the technique.

In May of Eighteen, Forty Lieutenant Governor William Hobson declared British authority over New Zealand. Since the Treaty of Weitang, he was signed. There has been debate over its terms, interpretations and differences between the Mary text and the text. The treaty was meant to recognize Mary ownership of their lands and give Mary people, the rights of British subjects that said many Maori were later dispossessed of their lands. Anyway the New Zealand Company promoted the country as a Briton of the south, and it began to organize large scale migration to New Zealand. But the fertile land required for all the Europeans migrating to New Zealand, did not actually exist. The company was failing. Because arable land was limited land titles were uncertain. There were two mini absentee landowners, and there was no real way to generate income through exports.

"Wakefield thank you very much for coming back on the program I really do appreciate it thank you doctor we feel images start out again tell us what your current status in the medical profession is I will appoint doctor I have the time to talk to the I lost my license to practice in the United Kingdom so I do not know the practice medicine I am a researcher and until like you lost your license because you got involved in research linking the MMR vaccine to a higher incidence of autism and kids are who are giving it at the age of that that I just now mentioned why did you get involved in this research it's not within your field of expertise I got involved because the parents reported that their children had civic gastrointestinal problems which they believed to be related to the neurological problem so the behavior problems in the we control and we confirm that these children who had to be in legally under treated under investigated actually was suffering extraordinary paid a failure to thrive and gastrointestinal problems and discovered that they had a noble gastrointestinal busy which the parents to believe all along but which the medical profession characteristically had largely dismissed our doctor is I said to you when you were last here it seems to me it should be easily provable either the MMR vaccine causes a higher incident of autism in children who were vaccinated or doesn't know why it is so difficult to prove or disprove a very interesting question I put this to the CDC my recommendation when the eye of the star route I was not that the vaccine causes autism we should stop vaccinating against me who it was but further research was needed that was the end of my career but I did make a recommendation to the centers for disease control in this country but such research should be done and that is what they did to their credit they went away and they tested the hypothesis story told him about the younger age of MMR might be a risk for his and that is exactly what a current expanding very high risk associated with recommended exposure to the backseat between twelve and eighteen months compared with getting it like three years to which you will hear the first they concealed back data they destroy the documents and they refused to publish they published an entirely cold in the paper to which one of that scientists and this is what I'll come back to the ground not my opinion the opinion of a senior CDC scientists who was involved in who designed study you analyze the data set we have committed fold we have kept this quiet fourteen years we are the ones with blood on our hands now that does CDC doctor is your whistle blower in your film and he's the one who admitted that the research that the CDC had done was not sufficient and that further research was necessary and he was so troubled by that he contacted of a friend who recorded him without this guy's without the doctor's knowledge now this doctor at the CDC is still there if the CDC is engaging in fact unethical conduct why hasn't he resigned he's protected by federal employees who vote will learn acted on the president Obama so I think he comes up to retirement very soon but we have sought to prevail on Congress to subpoena him and to have them both before a congressional hearing to explain what is his position so it wasn't something that was inadequate Larry it was full it was scientific fold and simple in millions of American children put in harm's way the attacks come against me from the pediatrician for example email your shows but she seems completely unconcerned with the is being in the body but is providing her with information with advice on the safety and efficacy of vaccines such as well against needs online they have lied to her they had given her this information but she seems completely on troubled by that and wants to blame me for all her current title my guess is Dr Andrew Wakefield doctor wake feel what would be the incentive for the CDC to engage in what you've called fraud well they are not in the backseat company in as much as they have many many patents for vaccines they spend four billion dollars a year on purchasing and selling vaccine dome and they have a huge interest in protecting the vaccine program and they've done this time and time again is to make decisions which goes country one country to protect the public and in favor of the protection of the vaccine program and this is just one such example my guess is Dr Andrew Wakefield doctor we feel we're gonna take a gas break we come back I'll ask you some of the specific question to some of these letter writers I have put to you including the fact that one of them says that your original research was not found this to be inaccurate.

K. and US without any reports all autistic regression the second thing was that it was clearly a me some children so why some children I'm not either since all children with getting the MMO then we reasoned that age of exposure to and my mom was one of the risk factors why because exposure to natural infection apple measles for example determines the outcome the young the younger you are when you get the facts the the natural infection the greater the risk of the survey to see so what is the same with the backseat was it the younger age that my mom that led to the problem and we shared this idea this hypothesis with the CDC in around two thousand one hundred went away and they tested that hunt faucets low and behold we did not know at the time but they found that it was for a kind of very high risk they kept that quiet for fourteen years millions of children in harm's way when all they needed to do was a bigger better study or two different remarks nation into an older age but instead they covered up the information they destroy the documents and they put many many children at risk Dr Andrew Wakefield is my guest he argues that there is a connection between the MMR vaccine in a higher risk of autism a doctor week he'll tell us about the CDC whistleblower well this was a remarkable incident was the first time that history of the CDC as far as I'm aware that a senior scientist has come forward and said we've committed fold you destroyed documents we covered up crucial information I can no longer there with this knowledge he in fact did the trying with his colleagues destroyed the documents he realized that will for your request for these documents that there was an ongoing Inquirer unit it was illegal to destroy federal document so he can't compete secreted away and he was saying provide us with them years later and so when we made before we were entirely come back we had to source documents that confirmed everything that he was sent Dr Andrew Wakefield is my guest Dr Wakefield please don't go away a number of people want to talk to you Allen from Philadelphia says that your work has been discredited however I a molecular.

that guy here the ones who don't have the tribe quite often or who who's hyme life is is just not safe this they need somebody to be able to just do things like h occasionally shower you fall asleep on a couch without wondering whether it's unsafe that kind of thing may see when you said you visited youth areas somebody like my see I think the best youth where the work has a lock my st in that they come from within that world and have an undisturbed deep understand adding of it so that the exchange between the youth workers and the children is much more honest in Ecuador as opposed to do gooders hanging in and trying to make changes without really understanding what these kids are up against so macy's sort of by her look and not so much growth authority but by her ability she controls this up people do feel safe there she's a survivor and the thing that kids since that they understand all just looking at her that she's she's been warned she's come out the other side of it and

come from a private school he wants to make it changes help these kids and but he's reasons for doing that PEPs a little misguided he doesn't really understand the world they come from and he needs to

Jalen Ramsey's troubled Jaguars tenure ends with blockbuster trade to Rams
"Terms of Jalen Ramsey will talk about this he finally got what he wanted the end result the disgruntled corner headed to the Los Angeles Rams the Jaguars finally relented and Ramsey to the west coast for first round draft picks two of the one in twenty twenty one in two thousand twenty one also a fourth rounder in the two thousand twenty one draft here's a statement for Jaguars executive VP. Tom Coughlin given the situation with Jalen we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars for this season and well into the future we feel the trade that we struck with the rams gives us great value for the next two drafts and remain confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title Jalen Wasser Productive Flair but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los A- Angela here's head coach Doug marrone obviously I had a good relationship with him and we were working together to get them healthy on the field and that that's what my focus was so he can get on the field and help us you know win football games and now you know how concentrating on on the players gotta here and and getting our guys focused on on on Cincinnati I think in his league nothing ever really surprises me anymore you know especially from the business side of things I found out like everybody else did last night you know lately point Dave came in and told me Rams reporter Lindsey theory joins us from L. A. and Lindsey listen there's been a lot of coming and going and all Ryder roster changes what's the general reaction to all of the news from the rams this week Wendy for a team that's three and three and in the mid of a three game losing streak certainly renewed buzz and energy at the team facility this morning now I am told the Jalen Ramsey is in route to Los Angeles and he's expected here later this afternoon or the rams do expect that he will pass his physical and I am told that he could be on the field for them as soon as Sunday against the Falcons now this would be viewed as a move where the rams are going all in once again to try to make a repeat super bowl run but I am told the Rams really believe that this is a move for their long-term future keep to leave and Marcus Peters or playing the season on expiring contracts Ramsey has another season left and the rams do intend to sign him to a long term engine now as you mentioned he's not the only new face here at the facility today Kenny Young Austin Corbett also were here they have passed their physicals though remains to be seen if they will be at practice later this afternoon and one more note Wendy Safety John Johnson is headed to injured reserve because of shoulder injury. Lindsey thank you it was a rare blockbuster trade a few weeks now before the trading deadline Ramsey joined a small handful of veteran players traded for multiple first round picks in the last third two years or so Khalil Mack and Jay Cutler garnered big offers from the bears the dolphins move two first rounders for Ricky Williams and it too big halls to get Herschel Walker an Eric Dickerson listen we can go back to the jags but since June Ramsey is moving onto the rams let's start with what he means for the La Rams Right now we'll Wade Phillips now gets a play defense the way he wants to Wakefield's really wants to play in your face on the line of scrimmage with the defensive line pressure and then in your face on the live with men cover corners. He hasn't been able to do that to be honest with you with Marcus Peters Marcus Peters is not not played good man to man coverage needs a better zone corner so now wade having Jalen gets the opportunity to get back to Colin defense the way he wants to do it I'll be really interested to see if they use Jalen the way we want I bill belichick thrill reverse where you put him on the team's best number two receiver and then everybody else gets to get double teams opposing for the opposing offense but it makes their defense significantly best Champ Bailey the dion sanders I mean the great quarters you can do that lock him up and then roll the other side I think you'll see that the other thing that was curious for me was that Tom Coughlin mentioned that Jaguars were better this year and going forward I think maybe either that was miss written or because they're not speak they're not better by getting a great player out of there so I miss quotes tim so expe- Joe Joe Listen you were you were spot on Jalen Ramsey never changed his stance which is what you asserted from the get-go and I would assume just finally came to a point where it just made no sense to have him on a roster when he wasn't going to win this transaction happened yesterday the first thing came to my mind is how often the people I was always talking to that this was going to work out for Jalen Ramsey like there was no fretting I didn't hear any fear and now that this is resolved itself in the way that it has it kind of plays into the tone that I've been hearing all along now I was talking to a source obviously familiar with Jalen Ramsey. They said that he's excited considering this a fresh start to be with the rams I think one of the questions that I had in talking to ram source last night was why not hold onto Marcus Peters to have opposite Jalen Ramsey in terms of making this movie now one thing that the ram source said to me is that it looked like it was clear that less need did not want to pay marcus. Peters beyond this year he's eligible unrestrained the free agency next year and it was better just to rip off quote unquote the band-aid now so then it becomes well who is opposite Jalen Ramsey for this game against the Atlanta Falcons they mentioned that two thousand seventeen when cal Roby Coleman I came to the teen that he did fill in for a keep to Leon outside first and second down and then on Nichols would have him excuse me on third down having a nickel or sometimes have troy hill on the outside and then have an RC in the middle so expect something like that or combination of that against the Falcons either way Julio Jones saw the rams problems in the short turn no because the opposite of the ball is atrocious right now and that's been there issue as far as being a front now what I will say is it does play into them getting better though like we can focus on golfing what this offense has been doing but with the guy like Jalen Ramsey not only does he hell Aaron Donald give him a maybe a half a second more to get to the quarterback he also may be able to steal a possession to for you and this ninety four was out there so air down gets another piece on the back end that can help him hold off quarterbacks for a second for him to get there and that's that's really all I can think about so maybe you
A Fiat Chrysler Merger With Renault Would Create 3rd Biggest Car Maker
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from American pest as the leading provider of safe, sustainable pest control solutions across the DMV. Let American past help you to take back your home or business from menacing pests visit them today at American pest dot net. Fiat Chrysler is proposing a merger with the French automaker Renault, Reynaud says it's considering it, this merger would be a big deal. It would create the world's third biggest car company after Toyota and Volkswagen. Here's NPR's Camilo domino, sqi, a merger this big would be striking, but not totally surprising. Fiat Chrysler has been looking for a partner for a while. And there, there are limited partners available. Michelle crabs is an analyst with auto trader and Cox automotive. She says, meanwhile, the French Renault had a long standing alliance with the Japanese automaker Nissan that was working. Well, and then things went awry, when former CEO Carlos gone was arrest. Sted in Japan for alleged financial misdeeds and things have just been unraveling now both fiancee's and Reynaud are eyeing their options when it comes to who though partner with as they prepare for big changes in the industry. Many major, automakers have already been partnering up over the last couple of years. There are two reasons first after years of record growth. The auto industry is starting to slow down and that decline is expected to continue. Meaning fewer car sales less revenue at the same time, automakers need to be making big investments in the future things like electric vehicles and self driving cars, and it's a tough one, because you're investing in something that isn't profitable today isn't going to be full tomorrow, but might be profitable might be essential in ten years time. Mark Wakefield is an automotive consultant at Alex, partner's upstart companies like tesla and even ride hailing services like Uber and lift. They're bringing new competition. In response established carmakers are closing ranks towards each other to be able to share costs and to be able to invest through this like on. That's really what's driving a lot of these merger discussions in partnership discussions to Reynaud has been making electric vehicles for years, while Fiat Chrysler, has been lagging behind its decided to focus on money-making brands like Jeep, and ram, big pickups, and SUV's. Plus, it has premium brands like Maserati Reynaud is pushing smaller low cost vehicles Fiat Chrysler thrives in the Americas. Particularly in the United States. Reynaud doesn't sell cars in North America at all. But it's a major player in Europe and Russia that also like a pretty good fit. One has small cars in the other big trucks, one offers luxury vehicles. The other goes down market, but they feel have problem which is trying to Felipe Munoz is an analyst at auto researcher Jada. Dynamics. He says, neither company has a foothold in the crucial Chinese market. Then there are the practical problems of merging and not in another culture. I know the more factories that's more people to teach to work together, which Fiat Chrysler, has to do already since the merger that made it back in two thousand fourteen Blyleven cries which are Italians on American that way only but he's not an easy thing. And it would be even harder if you try to preserve the French Renos alliance with Nissan of Japan, another complication Reynaud is part owned by the French government and has strong unions. The want to preserve local jobs, Fiat Chrysler says the deal if it happens would not result in any plant closures. Camilo dominancy, NPR news.
Volunteers Fight Bad Science
"Now, we're gonna look at the staying power of bad science and a group of volunteers trying to fight it. Take the infamous nineteen ninety eight study by a British scientists that suggested a link between childhood vaccines and autism. It was retracted more than a decade later and its author. Andrew Wakefield had his medical license revoked, but the myth that vaccines cause autism persists today with serious public health consequences. It's this kind of bad science that James Heather's is constantly looking out for he's a post doctoral researcher in behavioral science at Northeastern University. And he's been influential in catching mistakes in publications and getting those papers retracted Heather says, there are two ways. He can tell a paper might have a problem one. Is you kind of spider senses research, which is very difficult to explain it's. A series of sticks. Slows kind of mental shortcuts about what might be wrong with something. When you read it and a lot of the time at tips, you often to the second thing that you do in the second thing that you do is try to mathematically determine if there's anything in the paper that you see that's inconsistent. If there's a test that doesn't work or numbers that kind exists store some something similar to that at least between the two of those. And of course, the fact that researches will tell you sometimes if they have papers in their areas that they don't trust they think of problems with sometimes they will tell someone like me. But isn't there already a system in place for this? I mean, if you get published in a peer review journal that is literally you putting your paper out into the scientific community, and then people get to comment. Well, that's absolutely what it is. And that's also not the end of the story peer review a lot of the time is. Very necessary and very good. The problem with it when it comes to research, that's really bad is that it's not really designed to detect problems. It's done with the assumption that everything that underlies the research is just fine. It's conducted under a kind of an umbrella of trust. There's not really a culture of strong criticism of bad science that happens through peer review, the other thing that happens. Of course, is that if you if I write a paper in the paper is deeply problematic, and it's rejected from journal and the journal writes back to the author and says, no, look, we don't believe any of this. This is wrong. This was done incorrectly. These mistakes that we can't explain all the authors will do is send it somewhere else. This is called journal shopping. Sometimes it happens, of course with papers that are perfectly fine and accurate as well. But eventually with a kind of a saying in science as you can get almost anything published somewhere James, the Wakefield study was eventually retracted but science is a discipline that builds on itself right with new research, citing old research, have you ever found anything like that something so that could have an effect on public health. There are things that are very similar to that. That's very ominous. Well, if that sounds ominous it probably should bad medical studies can tip lodger results one way or another. So imagine we have six studies and one of them is problematic for some reason. And when we add up the results of all the six studies, and we do a meta analysis that one individual bad study changes the outcome of the meta analysis that can influence how governments by drugs how frontline hospital care is conducted, and what is considered to be standard care as evidence based or not so evidence based so at its absolute worst. There's very definitely problems like that that exists right now, I'm afraid I can't really speculate any further than that right now. Right now.
